In the period 2015-2017 the Center for Studies of the Holocaust and Religious Minorities is conducting a follow-up of the population survey from 2012 Antisemitism in Norway? The Attitudes of the Norwegian Population towards Jews and Other Minorities (2012). Findings from the survey will be published in December 2017.

About the project

The results of the 2012 survey showed significant social distance towards Muslims. The new survey therefore contains an expanded section on attitudes towards Muslims. The new project also includes a study on attitudes and experiences among the Jewish and Muslim minority. The minority survey covers the same subjects as the population survey, but explores relations between Muslims and Jews, as well as experiences that the minorities have with living in Norway. In addition to the quantitative survey, the minority study is conducted through group interviews with Jews and Muslims.

The survey is commissioned by the Ministry of Children, Equality and Social Inclusion, Ministry of Justice and Public Security, Ministry of Local Government and Modernisation, Ministry of Education and Research, and Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Project Group, consisting of national and international experts on antisemitism and quantitative research, will be the same as for the previous survey: Christhard Hoffmann, Claudia Lenz, Cora Alexa Døving, Vibeke Moe, Irene Levin, Werner Bergmann, Ottar Hellevik and Øivind Kopperud.
